Kehlani - Raw & True

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
Derrick "DOA" Allen
Album:
None (Promo Single)

In urban music, realness and brutal honesty are qualities typically associated with hard-edged beats and a brash, in-your-face presentation. But it’s entirely possible to create something Raw & True using the most delicate, understated elements in your aural repertoire. Don’t believe me? Take a listen to the latest single and first Booth feature from Oakland singer/songwriter Kehlani. On this low-key ballad, Derrick “DOA” Allen‘s gentle keys and guitar strums set the mood as the artist offers some real talk on the topic of relationships. Affirming the value of love over money, she urges her emotionally distant man, “Stop lookin down at your wallet / I’m tryin’ to see your eyes. ” After a listen to Raw & True, are you craving more? Then stay tuned; this cut isn’t part of a larger set, but we’ll keep you posted on the unsigned songstress’s plans as further details emerge.
